 Yes, of course one could do that manually for all subports, but I doubt
 that many (new) people will do that several times for all sub-ports and/or
 variants... For example, in our PR instructions it says to "check your
 Portfile with {{{port lint}}}" and that is also what the CI tests do
 (admittedly, the CI tests will just fail later on when trying to install a
 sub-port with missing dependencies).

 I think it would make {{{port lint}}} more user-friendly and at the same
 time increase the chances of catching errors; but if there would be
 consensus that this is unneeded, fine with me.
